Old School Meets Marketing Technology

Established in 1881 is a small Cider Mill run by the 6th generation of its founder.   A hard working family working the mill as predecessors did.  Slowly moving into the new virtual world of websites, mass emails, and now… Facebook.

Offering  a Virtual Prize Wheel from their website to collect contact data of their visitors was highly sucessful.  The time came for their new Facebook Fan site and was to include a Viral Virtual Prize Wheel App.  The Fan site went live on about December 10, 2009.  Seventeen days later they have 1650 fans.  Highly unusual growth for a small business. 

Recently they added a custom Voting App. on Facebook. Anything to engage your Fans will produce new fans.

Take a look at fast growing Facebook Fan page with actual viral marketing strategies in place.

Restaurant Viral Coupon Promotion

When the Voodoo Grill decided on a Virtual Prize Wheel to kick up their emailing list and drive business through the door they worked out a full scale small business promotion. Adding the Prize Wheel to their site was a no-brainer. To really get people going they added the Facebook Prize Wheel App which allows players to post to their wall allowing all their friend’s see the Voodoo Grill’s promotion and play themselves.

Attached to every receipt is a simple business card inviting their customers to play. (See Below) They also use table talkers and a few posters within the restaurant. This promotion has helped out the restaurant during the slow season thus far. Many people are coming in and end up winning all over again with their dining experience. All it takes is for a patron to come in once and enjoy their time, they’ll return again and again.

Take a look at their custom Facebook Fan site to see the full integration of the Facebook Virtual Prize Wheel App at

Facebook App Prize Wheel

In the small seaside town of Scituate Harbor, Massachusetts is the highly acclaimed Day Spa.  While tranquility is happening within it’s doors, the same cannot be said for what is going on at their Facebook Fan site. 

The Facebook Prize Wheel Marketing App allows people to take a Spin from the Fan Site and post to all their friends Walls increasing the spa’s visibility and name recognition. Pushing people into their Fan site and interacting with the Brand is the goal. It only took one person to post after the Spin to get the viral effect in motion.

Below is an actual posting to the Wall.

Party Prize Wheel

This one looks like fun. I think it speaks for itself. There is no end to the value of a prize wheel.  The same concept would be great for bar mitzvah’s, family picnics, Christmas parties, you name it. Everyone loves a prize wheel!
